A BIG and heartfelt THANK YOU to those who joined us on the Western Slope for the weekend of Mustang Horsemanship in cooperation with Steadfast Steeds and also to support Friends of the Mustangs. We raised $1,500 in support of the Mustangs at Steadfast Steeds. Thank you to ALL who showed up, who suited up, and especially those who adopted and want to know more. We salute you!
Sunday at Steadfast Steeds was pretty amazing. The weather was crisp, and we bundled up. The love story of Jade and Cole continued, as Anna did a demo with them together. Anna demonstrated wild horse gentling and guided participants so they could try out some of her methodologies. It’s such a cool experience to see Anna in action, we absolutely love when she comes to town and shares her gifts with others! Thank you, Anna, for being here again this year! (from our newsletter) We had twelve participants at the clinic.
“My favorite moment from today’s Mustang Gentling Clinic with Anna Twinney!! Coal (who was adopted by Jade yesterday) and Jade are making their first connection as Anna coaches them both.”
Discover the Next Generation of Horsemanship! Join us for a day of trust-based horsemanship and training as graduates of
the Reach Out to Horses Trainers Program demonstrate the effective, powerful,
and groundbreaking methodologies that Anna herself has developed, used, and
taught around the world to thousands of horses (and humans).
Meet Our Trainers
We have an eclectic group of folks who can’t wait to give you insights into your horses, true horsemanship, and the communication between horse and human.
They are coming together for this special event. They have all completed an extraordinary journey and we are excited to see them fly as they spread their wings and begin their careers as Reach Out to Horses’ Certified Trainers. They will introduce you to a world of trust and partnership, and show you what is truly possible in your training, in your relationship with your horse, and in your life.
Best of all you get to spend the entire day with Reach Out to Horses for only $20!
No It’s Not a Typo, Only $20 Dollars!
A full day of horsemanship for only $20 when you preregister, and a mere $25 at the door. We promise you won’t get this much groundbreaking information for so little anywhere! And if that wasn’t enough, 100% of the proceeds from the entire day go to the inspiring Zuma’s Rescue Ranch and the incredible work they are doing there to save horses and humans and give them all a second chance at life.
It’s a win, win, win for everybody!
Come see how these inspiring individuals have turned their dreams into reality and discover this unique and effective approach to horsemanship. Heck, you might even be inspired to embark on your own journey to a whole new life with our equine companions.

We’d like to thank you for your generous donation of $400.00 to The Cloud Foundation for Cloud’s Legal Fund. We so appreciate and value your support. Your help in protecting America’s wild horses and burros on public lands is essential to the future of our wild herds.
We invite you to learn more about Cloud and all our wild horses and burros via our website, www.thecloudfoundation.org. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions regarding your donation or the Cloud Foundation.
Only with your help and immediate action were we able to adopt and purchase our Freedom Fund bands after the disastrous roundup on the Pryor Mountains in September 2009. It is my great pleasure to report to you that all 15 horses look fabulous! Their foals Diego, Diablo, Annie Oakley and Pistol are delightful. We hope this new life will allow for the continuation of rare bloodlines that can one day rejuvenate the main Pryor herd. 20 year-old Conquistador maintains his position as “king of the stallions” and, true to her name, 22-year-old, Grumpy Grulla, still bosses every one of her family members around. The bands enjoy a beautiful new home on a 1000-acres outside of Billings, Montana.
Currently the BLM is completing removal of nearly 11,000 wild horses and burros from ten western states this fiscal year alone. The management to extinction tactic continues despite hundreds of thousands of letters, phone calls and petitions sent to government leaders and the BLM. The Cloud Foundation has helped to organize some thirty protests around the nation since last fall and it is clear that- although the BLM has not improved- lawmakers, the media and the public are becoming more and more aware of the government-sponsored mismanagement of our wild horses and burros.
Our primary focus remains on the Pryor Wild Horse (Cloud’s herd) and we encourage you to join our mailing list to receive updates from Ginger on her trips up to Montana to document and observe Cloud and his herd. The latest update on Cloud and the Freedom Fund horses from March is posted on The Cloud Foundation blog.
Ginger has been documenting the Pryor herd for over 16 years now and out of people’s love and appreciation for Cloud and his family a worldwide movement to protect all our wild horses has grown.
As always we are trying to keep up a constant stream of information and updates on Twitter and Facebook too—please join us there and connect with others to protect the horses and burros. You can read the over 80 press releases we’ve sent out since last fall, all archived on our website’s pressroom here. Please encourage your friends to text 44144 with the message MUSTANG, hit send and you will receive information and action alert texts on the mustangs and burros.
Again, thank you for your support of the Cloud Foundation and our wild herds. We are committed to their preservation in their wild homes.
I am constantly on the lookout for products that genuinely benefit horses. They are few and far between with a whole lot of fluff in the middle. I’ve recently become acquainted with a true equestrian and his company- EquiPedic.
It is my strong opinion that the pad is the most important piece of equipment that you need to own. The number of horses with sore backs is alarming. When the pain becomes severe, the horse becomes dangerous – period. With safety as our #1 goal, this is truly a safety issue. I urge you to thoroughly peruse the Equipedic Site. Since we’re dealers for this product, we can save you money on this already affordable saddle pad.
Another important note – I am on the Board of a national non-profit with a very simple mission: The Kind Acts Foundation offers the nation’s teachers an easy and free way to honor their students for kind and compassionate actions.
Founded in 2004 by my good friend Dave Hall, we will honor our 20,000th child this school year at www.KindActs.org.
Will you consider a tax-deductible donation to help perpetuate this wonderful cause? Details are at the Make A Donation link on the web site. Online and postal/check options are available.
